What do you currently have when you go out in the BC is a better question? Have you taken an avi-1 class? Do you roll solo with a group what?
I usually just take a shovel, some extra goggles, gloves, stuff like that. NOPE never taken a class. Usually go up with around 3-4 people. Most of the time they are pretty experianced. Sometimes solo.
And ya i know, its a accident ready to happen.
